fighter planes were reported speeding to trouble spots in. Java tonight

Yamashita War Crime Trial
Reveals Brutal Jap Savagery
By The Associated Press
MANILA, Oct. 31-At least 800 men, women and children were butchered
by Japanese in a dining-hall massacre baited with bonbons and assurances
of safety for the victims, survivors of the slaughter testified today at the
trial of Lt. Gen. Tomoyuki Yamashita on war crime charges.
It took place at St. Paul's College here Feb. 9, while American troops
were battering their way into the Japanese-occupied city.

region, will ultimately result in a neat residential street.

strongly opposed to any change in
their privileged position. The lot of
the common people has improved
very little since the beginning of the
Chiang regime in 1927.
"Nevertheless," Dr. Gale pointed
out, "the problem of social change in
a country like China, where the
standard of living is incredibly low,
the agrarian system backward and
the economic opportunities so few is
enormous. And the Chinese Com-
munists occupy a frontier area with a
relatively small population. The at-
mosphere is free from the traditional
corruption and privilege which taints
Chiang Kai Shek's government.
"The result has been that the
foreign press has overeriticized the
Nationalist government while Com-
munist China has received far
more praise than it deserves. One
is particularly impressed with the
fact that, the Chungking govern-
ment is largely staffed with Ameri-
can trained Chinese officials even
on the highest levels. So far as we
know, no positions of importance at
the Communist capital of Yenan
are occupied by western trained
"The Nationalists, governing by vir-
tual dictatorship, effectively have
barred other parties from the govern-
ment for almost two decades. They
have promised more popular partici-
pation and consequent representation
of opposition parties now that the
war is ended. Whether this will be
done remains to be seen. At least un-
til they are adequately represented,
the Communists may be expected to
continue armed opposition."
Dr. Gale stated that little Rus-
sian influence has been focused on
the Chinese Communists, but that
crude forms of Marxian ideology
are prevalent among the Commun-
ists. Newspaper correspondents re-
turning from Yenan report reduc-
tion of taxes, suppression of usury,
more equitable distribution of land
and improvement of other evils at-
tributed to the Chungking govern-
ment. "Just how far Russia will
move in advising the Communist
party in China I don't know," he
said. "And I don't think anyone
else does. We'll just have to wait
"The position of the United States
and Great Britain in regard to the
Chinese situation," Dr. Gale pre-
dicted, "doubtless will be somewhat
tenuous. The reforming objectives of
the Communist party are regarded
with marked sympathy; it is obvious
to us that the Chinese people them-
selves would welcome any govern-
ment pledged to improve their living
conditions. Yet any program painted
on a Communist banner is viewed
with distaste by the western powers."
A well known educator and political
scientist, Dr. Gale has served on the
Far Eastern faculties of the Univer-
sities of California and Michigan.

And then the Japanese who had
touched off the blast from outside the
hall rushed back through the doors,

ors who attempted to flee.

my brothers was dead. My other
